Has Chuck Norris ever recorded commentary?

I've been plowing through the epic Chuck Norris filmography here lately for a video project and was wondering if he's ever recorded an audio commentary on any of his movies? Does anyone know?

If not, is there any kind of in-depth documentary about his film career on a disc, or maybe an A&E Biography?

Chuck Norris doesn't record commentaries, because he doesn't need to explain his roles to anyone.

Chuck Norris don't break character until he's done the DVD commentary. The problem is that he's Chuck Norris. He never breaks character.

He recorded one a few years back, but the sheer awesomeness of his voice made the DVD production studio spontaneously combust.

Chuck Norris doesn't need to record commentaries - you know everything you need to know about Chuck Norris. Got it?

The last DVD producer to ask Chuck Norris if he was interested in doing a commentary is now spending his days sucking applesauce through a straw.

Good lord...

I almost prefaced my post with "Come on, no Chuck Norris jokes..." but why be a killjoy?

Okay but, come on, anyone know? I don't own any of these DVDs...

Re: Has Chuck Norris ever recorded commentary?

The only Chuck Norris DVD I own is a $3.00 copy of "Good Guys Wear Black" that I got at Big Lots. The "special" features consist of: "Interactive Menus! Cast & Crew Bios! Multiple Subtitle Tracks! and Scene Selections!" so no commentary track on that one.

I know this did not help you much, but at least I didn't make any Chuck Norris jokes.

Anybody else hear that Chuck Norris wants Texas to secede from the united states? No joke.

I don't need a DVD commentary from him, as he always speaks to me at night.

Sidekicks not being on R1 DVD is a crime against humanity.

Re: Has Chuck Norris ever recorded commentary?

If anything Delta Force or Walker Texas Ranger should have had a Chuck commentary.

I e-mailed his official site once and the person who responded said he has never been asked by a studio/DVD Producer to participate in Bonus Material like commentaries. They said he is more than willing to.

Did they ever fix the subtitle issue with Delta Force? IMDB says later copies were fixed but I haven't seen anyone who owns a copy say so.

Even Blu-ray doesn't have enough disc space to contain a Chuck Norris commentary.

Hope they go back on re-release Top Dog. That needs commentary soooo bad. I like to know what he was thinking when he made this movie.

That's something I just don't get. When these "top stars" wind down their careers, studios should be all over that to get them to do commentaries and revisit their older work. When Chevy Chase did commentary for European Vacation I thought that every studio should be jumping on that bandwagon and get him to come in and do tracks for all his older stuff. I'll gladly double dip on discs with truly value added content like retrospective commentaries from the stars.
